Annual Fund

A contribution to Aspen Academy's annual fund is the most important gift we ask of our community.

Our families, faculty, staff, and board of trustees contribute annually to this campaign: our goal is for 100% participation and for families to contribute $1,500 per family. Click here to Donate Now.

Colorado Child Care Tax Information

Aspen Academy encourages donors to increase their gift and benefit from an up-to 50% Colorado Tax Credit. The Colorado Child Care Contribution Tax Credit was established to encourage greater private support of Colorado child care programs. Because select monetary contributions to Aspen Academy qualify for this tax credit, you may be able to decrease the aftertax cost of your gifts by more than 50%.

The effect of the credit is that up-to half of your donation to Aspen Academy is offset by a reduction of your Colorado income taxes. You will still be able to claim your full contribution as a charitable deduction on your Federal and State income tax returns if you itemize deductions. Examples of the total impact on your taxes are shown in the chart to the right. As always, you should consult with your tax advisor to determine how the credit will affect you personally.

*Amounts in table should not be used as tax advice. Please consult your tax professional as individual tax situations vary.
